  PhD thesis: Plato's Sophist



Research interests:

  1. The History of Ancient Greek Philosophy
  2. Greek and Latin Textual Criticism
  3. Ancient Greek History
  4. Philosophy

I study the history of ancient Greek philosophy. Scientific progress in the history of philosophy depends upon the resolution of fundamental exegetical questions. I hope to contribute to the resolution of problems of this kind. The doctoral thesis I have proposed would address obscurities in the Sophist of Plato.

Who or what inspired you to pursue your research interests?

George Grote (1794-1871) is a source of inspiration.
